Installation/Removal Tool

I located some Euro inserts and they will arrive in about 2 weeks. Trying to find out how to remove the factory inserts.

Someone suggested a wedge tool from a glass shop. I stopped in at an auto glass shop today to ask about the "soft plastic wedge" tool and they thought I was crazy. Looked thru their tool catalogs and even called their tool jobber. Never heard of it.

They said it sounded like I needed a "pop rivet tool" to remove the bumper inserts.

Does anyone out there know what type of tool is used to safely pop out the bumper inserts?

May just let my body shop install for $34.
